The children and teachers at Jefferson Elementary are learning how to use the SOAR behavior plan to focus on learning. Please read the SOAR Behavior Expectations with your child. Your support and reminders will help your child be a 'SOAR'ing Eagle at Jefferson Elementary.
"The purpose of the commitment to PBIS at Jefferson Elementary School is to help create a climate of cooperation, academic excellence, mutual respect, and safety."
What does School-wide PBIS mean?
Our goal is to help each child develop self-discipline. Together the home and school share the responsibility for developing good citizens. Parents, teachers, and students must work together to maintain a safe learning environment. The PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention Support) program is based upon our philosophy of recognizing positive contributions of students.
PBIS means that teachers, administrators, counselors, and support staff are going to take responsibility to TEACH positive behavior expectations to students.
PBIS means that students will know exactly what is expected of them. Students who take responsibility to behave positively will be recognized and rewarded in a variety of ways. Students will also know exactly what consequences will result when they choose not to meet the school-wide expectations. (We’re all on the same page!)
